Joe's right, we need to definitely STEP IT UP. Check out the latest lies and fear spreading in this Yes on 8 ad:

By the way if my daughter came home from school and said she wanted to marry a princess? I would tell her that she can marry whoever she wants to marry! But, I guess that's not how the Yes on 8 crowd thinks...

...and the No on 8's latest? It's good, but definitely not as hard hitting:

Even if you have already, DONATE.

Even if you have already, call up a friend or family member that might vote Yes and talk to them. Get personal about how it affects you. Being real and being known brings change.
